Getting started in the Department of Education is a process that allows you to indicate your program of interest in education and receive specific advising to ensure graduation in a timely manner. A personal file of record will be created for periodic program completion review, and your name will be added to the education department’s electronic mailing list. Through the e-mail process you will receive program updates and general information about mandatory attendance meetings, specific registration guidelines for education courses, and postings of news and events occurring in the Department of Education.

You can get started in the Department of Education at any time during the semester. Please make an appointment with the Coordinator of Teacher Admissions and Field Experiences. The coordinator will be your on-going contact with the Department of Education. Once you are admitted to a selected teacher education program, you will be assigned an official advisor in the department. Secondary education students will also work with an advisor in her/his major field of study.
